How to Deal With Road Rage - Deepstash

How to Deal With Road Rage

  • Have a good night’s sleep. Your mind needs to be at its best whenever you are on the road. When we don’t sleep well, we’ll likely experience more impatience.
  • If you’re already familiar with the traffic situation in your area, avoid leaving your home during rush hour. 
  • Listen to softer music. Studies show that the more intense the music you’re listening to, your heartbeat will beat stronger. 
  • Take a deep breath to calm road rage.
  • Sometimes it makes perfect sense to stop when you feel the onset of road rage coming on.
  • Pretend you have a loved one in your car. We’re more vulnerable to road rage when driving alone. 
  • Think about the possible consequences if you lose control.
  • Realize that people can sometimes be difficult. Try to be the bigger person when someone is experiencing road rage.
